Chelsea travel to Lancashire to take on Burnley in the Premier League and the team news is in from Turf Moor.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are hoping to win back-to-back games in the Premier League for the first time this season as they take on Vincent Kompany’s team.

On Monday night, Chelsea picked up just their second victory from their opening seven games, the west Londoners defeated rivals Fulham 2-0 at Craven Cottage with quickfire goals coming from Mykhailo Mudryk and Armando Broja respectively.

It has been a stuttering start for the Blues since the arrival of Pochettino at Stamford Bridge, but the Argentinian still feels he and Chelsea can be successful.

“It is difficult to wait and when you are in Chelsea, I believe it is not about asking for time – you need to deliver from day one,” Pochettino said, as reported by The Guardian. “We have players that can deliver in the short-term.

“Of course we want momentum, to go into the international break with a different feeling to the last one [in September], it is really important to win against Burnley but we need to stay calm.”

Talking about the Blues’ defensive work, he added: “You need to build the house from foundations, the defensive area is doing very well and the whole team, when we don’t have the ball, is doing a fantastic job.”

The Premier League contest will get underway at 3pm BST at Turf Moor.
